America’s Endangered Properties: An Avenue to Potential Projects

Throughout the United States there are thousands of historic properties ripe for rehabilitation or preservation. Many of these properties will be picked up by developers and find new life with the assistance of tax incentive programs as our downtowns revitalize. Other properties won’t be as lucky, as they may not be eligible for any financial incentives. In any event, either by neglect, location, lack of awareness of a property’s significance or just bad luck, many properties end up inappropriately altered, “red-tagged” or, in some cases, the victim of the wrecking ball.
